Senate Bill No. 1069


Introduced by Senator Mendoza

February 12, 2018

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1069, as introduced, Mendoza. Workers’ compensation.
Existing law establishes a workers’ compensation system, administered by the Administrative Director of the Division of Workers’ Compensation, to compensate an employee for injuries sustained in the course of his or her employment. Existing law declares the intent of the Legislature to replace obsolete references in the workers’ compensation laws when those laws are being amended for any purpose.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to that provision.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 3200 of the Labor Code is amended to read:

3200.
 The Legislature hereby declares its intent that the term “workmen’s compensation” shall hereafter also be known as “workers’ compensation, ” compensation, and that the “Workmen’s Compensation Appeals Board” shall hereafter be known as the “Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.” In furtherance of this policy policy, it is the desire of the Legislature that references to the terms “workmen’s compensation” and “Workmen’s Compensation Appeals Board” in this code or and elsewhere be changed to “workers’ compensation” and “Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board” when such those laws are being amended for any purpose. This act is declaratory and not amendatory of existing law.
